The Drug Discovery, Design and Delivery Research Group builds upon expertise within the School of Pharmacy and the College of Science as a whole. Our work covers pre-clinical aspects of the drug discovery and development pipeline from the identification of novel drug targets, the design of new and improved drugs and antibiotics, to the development of improved methods of delivery.
Our aims are to:
- Identify new drug targets
- Design and discover new drugs
- Develop innovative approaches for drug delivery
Our multidisciplinary group includes organic chemists, structural biologists, pharmacologists, and pharmaceutical scientists who work collaboratively to utilise state of the art technologies and methodologies. We have strong links with the pharmaceutical industry and an important presence in the Lincoln Institute of Health (LIH). Our academic researchers also collaborate with the University of Lincoln's Antimicrobial Research Group, CaHRU, the National Centre for Food Manufacturing, and the Schools of Engineering, Chemistry, and Life Sciences.
